What do you want to do to take your education beyond the classroom? Are you ready to write a grant application and get your idea funded?

Students can apply for funding to support an Honors project, senior research, independent research, experiential learning projects, and travel to present at a professional conference.

Since 1995, the Paul K. and Evalyn Elizabeth Cook Richter Memorial Fund has provided more than $1.25 million to help you pursue projects that promote independent thinking and expression beyond the classic classroom setting. Funds have underwritten the cost of:

  • laboratory supplies for research conducted with a faculty mentor
  • travel associated with presenting research at a professional conference
  • fieldwork in the U.S. and abroad
  • housing for summer research and internships

And, any student in any discipline is eligible to apply for funds from the Richter program.
